Microsoft Teams is the successor to Skype for Business, which was launched in 2017. The relatively young tool from the Microsoft 365 portfolio is one of the leading platforms for modern online communication: In April 2021, Microsoft reported a record 145 million active users daily. Teams provides its users with a digital space to share information with each other in the form of messages or documents. For your company, this means an intuitive and efficient exchange of your employees internally as well as externally with customers, suppliers and partners.
A Teams channel is usually set up by the participants themselves, so that an exchange can always take place where it is currently useful. The entire user interface of Microsoft Teams is designed to be very intuitive and user-friendly, so that your employees gain a high degree of self-regulation.
By default, each newly created Teams platform includes a mailbox, OneNote notebook, and shared file storage. In addition, Teams offers the option to connect to other applications, such as OneDrive. Especially compared to its predecessor, Microsoft Teams offers the distinct advantage of sharing relevant documents quickly and easily with other participants during a chat or video conference. It is also possible to extend the software's existing functions with additional apps from Microsoft, third-party providers or your own development.
As a Teams beginner, advanced user or already at a professional level: Teams will revolutionize your collaborative work.
